Such a beautiful refuge. Located right on the waterfront in lovely Ganges, this small luxury property, a member of Relais & Châteaux, is definitely a getaway from the every day. The manor house is a pleasantly rambling old place loaded with charm and character, surrounded by 9 hectares (22 acres) of lush woods and pretty gardens. There are only 18 units, including a handful of cottages, as well as the highly respected Wellspring Spa, where every treatment is a customized one. Even so, the best reason to visit is the excellent cuisine—not only do guests wake up to a breakfast hamper, they then partake in a full country breakfast, plus there’s afternoon tea to keep energies from flagging. Plus the dining room is legendary. A truly unforgettable destination.
